Im with the same employer (nhs) over 20 years. Ive been on sick leave this past year. Had my Occ Health app yesterday and she asked how I was, told her still some fatigue, soreness as Im off my aza this past week & hope to restart it next week. My white cells are dropping all the time this past few months on aza so getting weekly bloods done for this. Anyway I said i would like to return to work hooefully end of dec but she said no you are not fit enough yet & my bloods & activity level need to be well stable for a few weeks consistently? I argued with her that I will feel ready in another 5 wks and she was having none of it. HR is now holding meeting with me to basically dismiss due to ill health. Im so let down as I feel that just when I am ready to come back Im told goodbye? Any words of comfort or advice 😞 How can Occ Health make thst decision surely they need harder evidence?
